Four or five
Breeze carrying mutters inside
Rectangles shifting against the magnolia
Like presentation slides

Why stop on the sidewalk
And face the window?
Bike lights bright
Spokes ticking
Chain tittering

Knocks follow
Arms move like a crane
Lifting me back into place
Whispers tell me it’s OK
It’s not
